A Lesson in Hurt

Hurt's Final Destination

is only
a badly torn

resolve to
throw it away.

the trash
bag, leave it

the curb.
Allow the pros

take it
somewhere to decompose.

Questions to ask yourself:  

Why a skirt and not another article of clothing?
Why knot the trash bag as opposed to tying it?
Why the word "allow"?
What words rhyme?  Where do you hear alliteration?  Repetition?
Did you ask yourself other questions?  What were they?  Were you able to answer them?
